                    SEPARATE STATEMENT OF 

Re:  Young Broadcasting of San Francisco, Inc., Licensee, 
Station KRON-TV, San Francisco, Notice of Apparent Liability 
for Forfeiture (``NAL'')

     I am pleased that this Commission is finally taking an 
initial step against indecency on television.  That being 
said, I am disappointed that this complaint was filed over 
15 months ago and we are just now addressing it.  When we 
allow complaints to languish for over a year, the message is 
loud and clear that the FCC is not serious about enforcing 
our nation's laws.  Meanwhile, numerous other complaints 
about indecency on television remain unaddressed.  I hope we 
will take up those complaints expeditiously.  The time has 
come for this Commission to take a firm stand against the 
``race to the bottom'' on the public's airwaves.
